3nt Dream pricing
 
Just curious, what's the cheapest you've seen the 3nt Dream? I assume the lowest prices come with the last-minute restricted fares?

Generally, the lowest prices for a cruise are the ones offered on opening day for any specific cruise.

The last-minute restricted fares, while lower than the prevailing rates at the time, are typically higher than the opening day rates for the same room

The above is correct unless you live in Florida or are part of the military.

Recent Florida resident rates out of both Port Canaveral and Miami have been available for as little as $100/pp/night.

For example, I see some pricing now starting at $375. Do you think opening day pricing would have been lower than that?

Which cruise? And is that the individual price?

Jan 31st? OGT?

If so then the data I have says, yes, that is cheaper than opening day pricing. (Category 9D - $471/pp)

I think there are some dates in Jan. and Feb. for $375pp. I hadn't really been watching pricing lately, but with all the snow we've been getting, it's made me start looking for a nice long weekend getaway. Just wondered if $375 was good or if I could possibly wait even more last-minute and do better.

Well, once the last-minute restricted fares (IGT, OGT, VGT) are announced, that's the price they will be. As PP noted Fl rates and military could be lower, if they are offered.

There's a sticky above that has the pricing for the Dream cruises in 2013:

That's one of the questions I had. Once the restricted fares are released, they don't change?

And am I correct that if I go with a restricted rate, it will not combine with my onboard booking discount?

I recently booked a 3 night Dream for February and I booked using my 10% obb discount instead of the *gt discount. We paid $824 for 2A in an 11c gty instead of $857 and we also have a $100 OBC.

Yes, that's the way to do it! :) Thanks.

The restricted rates do not change. Also the restricted rates are for new bookings only, if you are moving a dummy cruise then no you can't combine it.
